The former Canaries’ star will be taking part in a 220m bungee jump in May, and the school has sponsored him to do it.

Along with 19 others, Mr Goss will be jumping from the Verzasca Dam in Switzerland to raise money for the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).

Each person will be raising at least £1,400, with Mr Goss’ money raised through the students at Langley School. The pupils have already raised £2,000 and will be adding to that total on Friday with a non-uniform day.

In an assembly to pupils, Mr Goss said: “I thoroughly appreciate what you are doing and your money will make a huge difference to people’s lives.” The jump is the highest in the world from a man-made structure and will see participants freefall for eight seconds as they reach speeds of up to 85mph before the elastic recoils.

It will take place on May 11, Mr Goss’ 48th birthday.
